Powerhouse on ABC 7 News

John Peters, executive chef of Powerhouse Restaurant and Bar (215 N. Clinton St., 312-928-0800), made his live TV debut Monday at the ABC 7 studios.

During his 11 a.m. news segment, Peters demonstrated Powerhouse's signature Slow-Roasted Chicken Thigh with barley, braised artichokes, swiss chard and sorrel sauce. Peters also shared recipes for the Walleye Pike with roasted red pepper falafel, English peas, spring onion and serrano ham, and the Crisp Kurobuta Pork Belly with grilled tart apple, barley, bay leaf and curry.

Yu and her co-anchor Sylvia Perez both expressed their praise for Powerhouse. Sylvia commented on the restaurant being "beautiful" and admitted she was "pleasantly surprised" from her dining experience. Yu also confessed that Powerhouse "is one of my favorite restaurants."

In case you missed the segment, you can watch it for yourself here.
